The Black Ember 16" Forge 20 Backpack 18L is a smaller Forge, Three-Way commuter pack.  Dedicated to your everyday commute, with the ability to transform to a Backpack for comfortable and efficient load carry, to a Soft-Brief for business, and then to Shoulder-Bag for casual carry. YKK Aquaguard zippers and Black Ember's proprietary bond-stitch construction keep your gear dry. The Forge 20 is crafted from the new CORDURA® re/cor™ RN66.

Black Ember Forge 20 is a clamshell style pack, that means it unzips 360 degrees, so you can see all your gear laid out and well organised right in front of you. Designed with logical gear access in mind, the FORGE-20 has all the organisation needed for tech-centric lifestyles. External fast access for essentials like keys, wallet and phones; soft and protective pockets for laptops and tablets; generous easy-access pockets; and hidden zipper pockets for secure items. The Forge 20 is compatible with rolling luggage handles and features a TSA compliant fully protected and suspended laptop sleeve.

The Forge 20's ergonomic shoulder straps are optimised for comfort and load carry: two layers of the same EVA-Foam found in the best running shoes make for an especially comfortable and supportive harness. The airflow back-panel keeps you cool and dry and includes a convenient storage space to quickly stow your shoulder straps. Black Ember's laser-etched hypalon zipper-pulls lock together with a snap.

Black Ember is proud to be the world's first brand to collaborate with CORDURA® Advanced Fabrics on the launch of its new CORDURA® re/cor™ RN66 collection. It is the first 100% recycled nylon 6,6 textile from CORDURA®.

When compared to virgin N6,6 production CORDURA® re/cor™ RN66 produces 83% fewer GHG emissions, consumes 82% less energy and uses 57% less water.

The CORDURA® re/cor™ RN66 refers to recycled Nylon 6,6. That 6,6 rating means it's a high tenacity nylon and that it is ultra-durable. CORDURA® re/cor™ RN66 has passed the brutal barrage of tests that make a woven nylon CORDURA® brand certified.

All Black Ember products are made using their bond-stitch high-precision construction. All textile components are laser-cut for precise assembly. This construction yields a super durable, over-engineered pack with a blacked-out, minimal and stealthy aesthetic.
